NVIDIA Quadro 1000M

The NVIDIA Quadro 1000M is a professional workstation graphics card based on the Fermi architecture (probably the same chip like the consumer GeForce GT 540M). Compared to the 5010M, the 1000M does not support ECC memory and DP floating point calculations. According to the clock rates, the Quadro 1000M should be positioned between the GT 540M and 550M.

The Quadro series offers certified drivers that are optimized for stability and performance in professional applications like CAD, DCC, medicine, or visualisation areas. The OpenGL performance for example should be significantly better than similar specified GeForce graphics cards.

The shader / CUDA cores can be accessed using DirectX 11, OpenGL 4.1 for graphic rendering and DirectCompute, OpenCL, AXE, and CUDA for general purpose calculations. Due to the new Fermi core, the 1000M should offer a high performance in general purpose calculations.

Furthermore, the Nvidia Quadro 1000M is compatible with the new stereoscopic solution by Nvidia called: NVIDIA 3D Vision Pro.

To automatically switch between the processor graphics card and the Quadro, the 1000M supports Nvidia Optimus (if the laptop vendor chooses to integrate it).

The Quadro 1000M is specified at 45 Watt TDP and therefore suited for 15.6" laptops.
